Housing associations are central to the government's strategy to improve social housing yet have no direct statutory responsibility for rehousing homeless people. This study critically examines the role of housing associations in responding to the needs of women who have become homeless due to domestic violence.Housing associations - rehousing women leaving domestic violence will fill a gap in the literature for academic staff and students interested in housing studies, social policy, sociology, women's studies, political studies and organisation/management studies; provide valuable guidance to staff in housing associations and local authorities working in "general needs" housing, supported housing and homeless services; and provide policy makers with a useful introduction to key issues.
